Do you already own a router table that you want to incorporate into your saw? The TS-LS Joinery System consists of a 32" (810mm)- or 52" (1320mm)-capacity TS-LS Rip Fence System and a complete package of our best routing equipment:

Wonder Fence Shaper-Style Router Fence

Jumbo Right Angle Fixture

Shop Stop Fence Stop

Master Reference Guide and Joinery Templates

LS Instructional DVD

Add our steel router table installation hardware (TSRTHW) as an accessory to save yourself the time and effort of fabricating your own method of attaching your router table to the INCRA TS Rails.

The INCRA TS router tables shown are sold separately from the TS-LS Joinery System. For a TS-LS System that includes a router table, check out TS Combos #1 through #4.

See the TS-LS Compatibility Chart for more information regarding the TS-LS & TS Router Table installations.

TS-LS Joinery Systems are available in 32", 52", 810mm and 1230mm range models.

The Lead Screw (LS) Technology

Spend more time cutting, less time tapping and measuring! Now available in metric, the LS positioner's patented lead screw positioning mechanics allow fence positioning accuracy of +/- .002" at 1/32" increments (+/-0.05mm on 1mm increments) across its entire range. It's essentially perfect even without the built-in micro adjust, but the large micro-adjust knob turns the lead screw against the mating threads, allowing the fence to be shifted between incremental steps with .001" (0.025mm) resolution. The incredible control available completely eliminates the "Tap, tap, tapping" involved in making small adjustments to a conventional rip fence. And since the mike is lead screw-based and reads directly in thousandths of an inch, it's repeatable as well. This micro adjust is entirely different from the random, slow-motion knobs used on rip fences in the past.


INCRA's TS-LS System was one of only two fence systems to earn top scores for alignment against the blade and lack of deflection in Wood Magazine's May 2004 Rip Fence Test. Perfect alignment relative to the blade is guaranteed by the system's low friction and by the carriage lock's tremendous pressure across the sliding carriage, not unlike a traditional T-square style rip fences. The fence can be initially aligned parallel to the miter slot, slightly "relieved" on the outfeed end, or anywhere in between.

INCRA TS-LS Table Saw Fence 
- 52" Range

The 52" (1320mm)-capacity TS-LS System uses 92" rails and either a 32" or 810mm LS Positioner. The standard Mount Unit (LS52-TS) handles saws measuring 28" or smaller front-to-rear (along the miter slot). Saws measuring 28" to 33-1/2" deep can be accommodated by ordering the TS-LS with the "XL" Mount Unit (LS52-TS-XL), which has a longer fence and base support panel. 

Convenience and Capacity

There are two rail lengths available: The 32" (810mm)-capacity TS-LS is based on a 72" Rail length, and the 52" (1320mm)-capacity system uses 92" Rails. Both systems use the same LS32 Positioner, and quick-release knobs allow the positioner's base assembly to be shifted further from the saw blade on the 52" system's longer rails to achieve the greater capacitt. The TS Rail Support Legs are standard equipment on the 52" System.

The quick-release feature allows the positioner's base assembly to be positioned anywhere along the length of the rails to access a router table in any position, and the base assembly can removed in seconds, giving you total access to the saw's surface. The quick release also allows the base assembly to be reversed on the rails to allow about 14" (350mm) of ripping capacity to the left of the blade. After the fence and base assembly has been removed from the rails or repositioned, three pairs of stops on the rails guarantee that the fence system stays perfectly aligned and calibrated, time after time.


Will the INCRA TS-LS fit on my table saw?

The INCRA TS-LS will fit directly on just about any standard 10" table saw, typically without any drilling or tapping. There are only two things you need to check to make sure that it will fit your saw:

1. The length of miter gauge slot (front-to-back distance of table). If this measurement is 28-1/2” or less (standard for most 10" table saws), the standard INCRA TS-LS will will fit your saw. If this measurement is between 28-1/2” and 33”, the TS-LS System can be ordered with a longer fence extrusion and base support panel for a nominal charge as a substitution for the standard-length components.

2. The front and rear surfaces of the saw. These surfaces must be flat and square to the top, with at least two holes in each surface. Hole locations and diameter are unimportant because INCRA's universal rail mounting brackets will work with any hole pattern and a wide variety of hole sizes.

See the TS-LS Compatibility Chart for more information regarding the TS-LS & TS Router Table installations.

Five Sliding Scale

Five Sliding Scale Template Channels All LS Positioners include a Primary Stainless Steel Scale, a "Floating" Reference Scale and an Auto-Centering Scale. The Primary scale adjusts on a magnetic track in the first channel to indicate distance from the cutter. The Reference Scale "floats" in a second channel to indicate distance from the last cut or any other reference point of your choosing. The Auto- Centering Scale (imperial systems only) fits in a third channel to Automatically and Effortlessly center your work for any operation.

Easy on, easy off

Easy On, Easy Off Dismounts for cross-cutting operations and remounts in less than 10 seconds. This also makes it easy to use INCRA precision on both sides of the blade. The positioning range is 32" to the right and 14" to the left of the blade. The new TS-LS removes exactly the same way as the TS Ultra shown here.

Bracket

These "saddle" brackets not only allow fast dismounts, the clever design of INCRA's centrally placed carriage literally forces the fence into perfectly parallel alignment at any position. These brackets also ride above the table saw 
surface to allow ovement anywhere along the 72" rails in either direction.

The fence skims above the table on whisper smooth glides, eliminating all fence to table contact.

Quick, Easy Installation

Quick, Easy Installation Universal mounting brackets virtually guarantee compatibility with any 10" table saw, with no drilling, no tapping and no modifications.
